Easy Red Velvet Cake

'Tis the season for yummy treats!  There is an abundance of cookies, desserts and snacks at every holiday get together.  I have a repertoire of holiday recipes that I use during the Christmas holiday season.  One thing I look for when adding a new recipe to that collection is that it must be easy.  I don't want to be rushing out the door to pick up an ingredient to make a treat an hour before company is coming.

Red Velvet Cake is a nice, easy to make holiday cake.  I use the Easy Red Velvet Cake recipe from the Betty Crocker website.   The nice thing about this easy recipe is it is a perfect recipe for Christmas baking with kids to make holiday baking a family affair.   Like many easy recipes, this recipe does not require a lot of ingredients or special equipment.  The recipe uses buttermilk or water.  I recommend using buttermilk for a richer flavour.  The red food colouring does not add any flavour, it just adds a festive touch to the cake.

Red Velvet Cake is generally served as a cake, cut into pieces but I like making mini Red Velvet Cupcakes for a delectable tiny treat.  I use the Christmas theme mini cupcake paper liners for the cupcakes to add a festive look.  After frosting the mini cupcakes, I garnish with a few chocolate sprinkles.  These are perfect for the dessert table and for bake sales.  They are a keeper  for the holiday season!
